The CloudNativePG Community has announced version 1.18.0, a new minor release of the CloudNativePG Operator, which introduces support for cluster-managed physical replication slots to automatically manage physical replication slots for each hot standby replica in a High Availability cluster, failover events included.

The cnpg plugin for kubectl has been enhanced with the introduction of 3 new commands:

  • hibernate: destroy all the resources generated by a Cluster, except the PVCs that belong to the PostgreSQL primary instance (hibernate on), and re-create the cluster (hibernate off)
  • install: generate manifests to override the default configuration options for an operator deployment, such as namespaces to watch, replicas, and so on
  • pgbench: generate jobs to run pgbench against a given cluster

Some minor bugs have been fixed, in particular importing a database with plpgsql functions and finding the closest backup when doing PITR.

New patch releases are available for all the supported versions, including 1.17.2 and 1.16.4.

With the release of 1.18.0, the 1.16.x minor version will be end of life from 10 December, 2022.

We encourage you to update the operator at your earliest possible convenience.
